Escapism in East London  - Photography by Joanna Lawrance

Freddy from East London


Freddy’s story

This is a story of a young man called Freddy who lives in East London with a disability. After two hips operations, life for Freddy is very uncomfortable even with powerful medication. 

In the last two years he has turned to marijuana to help ease his pain and keep him active. After a coffee in the morning he visits the park to smoke and relax, whilst wishing his condition was more understood.
